Shaktism (Shakta philosophy)Source: Google Books: Manthanabhairavatantram
Nirāśin (निराशिन्) refers to “one who is free of craving”, according to the Manthānabhairavatantra, a vast sprawling work that belongs to a corpus of Tantric texts concerned with the worship of the goddess Kubjikā.—Accordingly, “(The Śāmbhava yogi) has the authority (to perform the rites), knows the scripture and has a consort. [...] Free of duality, egoless, free of craving [i.e., nirāśī], he awakens the body (of mantra). He is well conjoined to the transmission of the intense (form of the) Command. He carries a patchwork quilt and (wears) cotton. Always intent on wandering at night, he is said to be a Śāktayogin”.
Shakta (शाक्त, śākta) or Shaktism (śāktism) represents a tradition of Hinduism where the Goddess (Devi) is revered and worshipped. Shakta literature includes a range of scriptures, including various Agamas and Tantras, although its roots may be traced back to the Vedas.
